Agentes Secretos pre-reading thought-provoking activities help students to engage in the topic on espionage. I have used these resources and ideas with 7-9th grade, and the students love them every time.
1. Gallery activity questions. I used this activity prior to reading Agentes Secretos. Students have to figure out the theme of the next novel. For this activity, the teacher will need to print out 10-15 pictures related to secret agents. Click here to get a list of the items I usually google. Print out pictures and place them around the class. Then pass out the Gallery activity questions. Students walk around and list the activities. As included in the instructions, students write down objects, albeit it in English, then go back to their seats to define objects and list them.
2. Pre-reading activity engages students around the topic of secret agents. These questions probe students’ perceptions of secret agents and the need for them in current times.
3. Chapter 1 questions/ with a deep-thinking twist.
